Endoscopic removal of a right main bronchus glomus tumor
AbstractGlomus tumours in the respiratory tract are very rare. The majority of the reported cases have been surgically treated. An approach with rigid bronchoscopy to endobronchial lesions suspected to be carcinoid or other well vascularized tumours, as glomus tumor is, should be considered because it can allow a safe diagnosis and eventually be therapeutic avoiding more invasive and surgical procedures.
